I actually have two bread boxes in my kitchen and still use them... but then, I also do a lot of baking, mostly muffins and bread these days. Home baked goods don't come with plastic bags. You can, of course, purchase plastic bags for that sort of use.

The downside with a breadbox is that if something goes moldly in it you have to scrub said box, otherwise you will continue to have mold problems because of spores and moldly crumbs.

The other reason for a bread box is to keep critters and insects away from your bread.
